Do I sense a bit of Electro in Pinkie's Lie?

There was a post a while back talking about how the mane six's personality types comprise a pretty broad spectrum, so a lot of folks (myself included) find ourselves identifying with one or more of their personalities...

On that note, it's kind of surprising that me and my fiancée get along so well. We realized the other day that I'm mostly like Twilight, with some of the particularness of Rarity and reservedness of Fluttershy. She's mostly like Rainbow Dash, with some of the randomness of Pinkie Pie and determination of Applejack.

Though now that I think about it, considering we can both describe our personalities in terms of ponies, maybe it's no surprise. KF

Is there a specific term for it at all? Like....ponificaton?

Also I downloaded the Pinkie's Lie mp3. I have a weakness for electro music.

They're broad and they encompass pretty common characteristics, like competitiveness and whatever Pinkie Pie is.

That said, I'm pretty obviously Pinkie Pie/Rainbow Dash >.>

I showed the show to some friends recently and every time they said "I love how Pinkie/Rainbow does whatever" the "whatever" was something they've told me I do a lot.

Like not filter what I'm thinking before saying or doing it.

I think it's probably easier to mention it here to prevent too many people doing the same ...

Some time ago, an abbreviation became excessively popular for people who wanted to quote an entire post only to express their agreement with it. In order to demonstrate this abbreviation's lack of contribution to meaningful discussion, a moderator then introduced a word filter so that it was replaced by an enthusiastic expression of the poster's love for ponies. Said filter is no longer active (and so I don't think there's much point in not spoiling it), but it is still remembered by some of the forum's older denizens. The Scyphozoa's description of it as a grater relates to one of the months where the moderators get to relieve their stress. Such events tend to have a couple of lingering effects, this being one of them.

This 20 minute master piece is probably the most terrifying thing I've ever heard (i was on the verge of crying). It's based on Cupcakes and it tells the whole story of Pinkie's descent into madness.

Cupcakes never really bothered me that much, but this song really made me cringe, I was pretty damn depressed for a day and half. But then i learned to giggle at the ghosty, guffaw at the grossly, and now it doesn't bother me at all.

Oh, Nightmare Moon. I don't know why I never saw that before, guess I was just too used to every proper noun being a play on words of some sort. Plus there's the fact that Nightmare is totally already a word.

Well, they haven't shown the full roster yet, which will include 17 characters. They have revealed only the main six. Actually the preview shows Applejack vs. Twilight Sparkle.

Oh hell, I'll just link the livestream. Lasts an hour, completely worth it, imo. http://www.livestream.com/mane6

Given that it contains 17 characters, it's probable Luna or Nightmare Moon will be playable. There aren't a truckload of options beyond the main cast.

(Well, there are, but few who actually get speaking lines or influence plot in any way)
